Skincare Review: Proaura serum*

I'm back with another skincare review, this time from a brand that is completely new to me. I'm always excited to try new products on the eternal quest for better skin, if you're not on this ride please don't tell me, the world wouldn't be able to handle my jealousy.

Proaura is a Vitamin C Face Serum with Astaxanthin which is boasted as nature's most powerful antioxidant and 60 times more powerful than Vitamin C. Proaura has both as well as hyaluronic acid and claims to help your skin with ageing in a number of ways. Firming the skin and increasing elasticity, long lasting hydration and restoring vitality to dull, tired looking complexions. This last point is what peaked my interest the most, my lifestyle is erratic and work often means long days and little sleep, sometimes out in harsh weather.

One more thing, Proaura is hypoallergenic, paraben and fragrance free which I know is a big plus for some of you guys.

As mentioned already I love to try products that will help with my dull, tired skin when I've been on a big work stint, but I was also intrigued to give Proaura a go when I noticed one of the main ingredients was hyaluronic acid. I tend to go for products containing hyaluronic acid quite a lot as they've always worked nicely on my skin, keeping it brighter due to the added hydration.

As you can see the packaging is very simple, I always like this look as it's almost got an old apothecary feel. I'm okay with a clinical look, I associate it with something that works and is good for you before I've even given it a go.

You dispense the product using the built in pipette and don't need a lot of it at all. I tend to use a little extra so I can take it down my neck too and give me slightly more time to rub it into my skin. You get a tightening feeling as it sets so I like to follow it up with a moisturiser whether I'm using it before bed or under my makeup.

Now Proaura claims to deliver visible results in just three to four days of application, I'm not sure I could say I saw any dramatic change in my case but my skin definitely feels a little more smooth and looks slightly brighter and more even, but I do have to use it daily. I also used to be quite conscious of a couple of forehead lines I'd developed yet these seem to be less noticeable lately. I don't know if Proaura has reduced them or made my makeup sit nicer but I'm very grateful either way.

I have to admit I've been using this product for quite a while before I got the time to write my review and am now nearly at the end of the bottle. I do love to try new products each time something runs out but I am going to be sad when this runs out.

Proaura is usually £35 for a 30ml bottle which I think is a reasonable price due to how far it goes, but I noticed it's currently on sale for £25 so now is definitely the time to grab it here.

If you do give it a try I'd love to hear your thoughts and I hope you enjoy it as much as me.
